Telling your Dad

Dear Munchkin,

I told your Dad about you tonight.  It was pretty much torture waiting all day until we both got home to tell him.  I have yoga classes on Tuesday and your Dad wasn't getting back from New Orleans until a little before I got home.  It just not something you tell someone over the phone or by text or email.

I gave him an early Fathers Day card in order to tell him.  He looked a little stunned as it sank in and then got this super happy look on his face and grabbed me in a big hug.

He's ever so pleased about you.  As I mentioned in the the previous note, we weren't sure if we would be having you at all.

Dear Munchkin,

Tonight I found out that you're going to be here in about 9 months.  I'm so pleased, excited and scared all at that same time that I can hardly stand it.

And I can't share it with anyone yet.  Your Dad needs to be the first one to know and he's still in New Orleans.  We went down there for the weekend on a bit of a spur of the moment trip because he had to work in a town near there today.  I came back today as I have to go to work tomorrow and he won't be back until tomorrow night.  He is going to be so surprised and happy.

I want you to know that you are a wonderful surprise.  We thought you wouldn't be coming along for at least another 6 months or so.  In fact we weren't so sure we if we could have you.

I can't wait to meet you when you get here.
